Android Lollipop market share closing in on the 10% mark, latest Google numbers show


Google just released its weekly Android version distribution numbers, and the latest Android 5.0 Lollipop is going for the 10% milestone, with a tiny help from the bleeding edge Android 5.1 update. That is almost six months after Lollipop launched as an over-the-air update, but the real kicker is in the Android KitKat numbers. 

This 4.4 version made its debut for the Nexus 5 on October 31, 2013, or about 20 months ago, and is now standing at close to 40% market share. Great success. The Lollipop share, however, is bound to grow exponentially with the release of the Galaxy S6, LG G4, and HTC One M9 crop of flagships this season, as all of those come with the latest and greatest out of the box.
